Mixing styles from the ragtime and country music of the twenties and thirties to the rock and roll and punk music of their adolescence, The Devil Makes Three pushes the boundaries of acoustic music. Citing influences as varied as Steve Earle, the Reverend Gary Davis, Memphis Jug Band, and Django Reinhardt, the band combines tight vocal harmonies with idiot-savant finger style guitar to create an exciting and original sound.
Since releasing their first album in 2002, the band has played to capacity crowds up and down the West Coast, and has shared bills with Robert Earl Keen, Paul Thorn, Drag The River and Lucero.
Fast friends since their childhood in rural Vermont, Pete Bernhard (guitar), Lucia Turino (upright bass), and Cooper McBean (guitar, tenor banjo) are currently based in Santa Cruz, CA where they enjoy regular airplay on local radio stations KPIG 107.5, KKUP 91.5, and many others nationwide. The band is currently working on their second full-length album, and is planning to tour extensively over the coming months.
